    Hi, Cowboy. Yep, that's a good article. There are a few of 'em out there on the little Rhineland kit. I'd like to set one up with irons and also an aimpoint in QD rings. Would be a great little armadillo popper for the front seat of my hunting truck, and with iron sights, it would be a nice for my young son as a next step up from his .22.

    Best,
    Jon

    These guys take the Rhinland kit one step further by adding an integrated suppressor making a De Lisle Carbine type weapon.

    Yep. I had noticed that. It takes some looking on the site, but they also make what I have been looking for - a sporterized version, if you will, that doesn't have the real or fake suppressor on it. Here are a couple of photos. I believe Williams or somebody makes a scope mount to fit it. Since it apparently comes with irons, it would be a useful and fun little unit, especially with an Aimpoint in QDs.

    Best,
    Jon
